Smile -dragging- 2012 Toyota Prius Trim level 3

I have had my car since 43k miles. I now have 70k miles. I just started feeling some drag, or uneasiness from a full stop, when I hit the gas. It feels weird on both Eco mode, and regular mode. However, the power mode feels fine. Any suggestions? I am hoping its not something major as the electric motor. I love my Prius, as its awesome, but this has been troubling me lately.

A diagnostic visit to a Toyota dealer probably would be a good idea.
There might be codes set that don't light a light.

Only "wild guess" suggestion I have is to put a healthy dose of Techron in the gas to see if that helps any.

And......since "feelings" can vary so much......you could have a brake dragging too.
